Bentonville Together, the city of Bentonville’s DEI group, and Downtown Bentonville Incorporated (DBI) are hosting “Bentonville Together: A Celebration of Our Multicultural Community.” This one-day festival is scheduled for Saturday, April 29, 2023, from 4 pm – 9 pm at Orchards Park.
Bentonville Together is a free, family-friendly event welcome to all and is presented by PepsiCo. and Walmart. The festival provides an opportunity for Bentonville residents to celebrate their respective cultures and introduce them to other local families, ultimately increasing awareness about the many groups represented in the area.
Live entertainment featuring various multicultural performances will be showcased on the mainstage starting at 2 pm with the Home Sweet Home Children’s Festival Show. 10 different multicultural entertainment acts will follow, as each celebrates its own unique heritage. In addition to the mainstage, several organizations will offer different cultural activities for the community to experience around the festival grounds.
A Bentonville Together festival t-shirt will be available for purchase to commemorate this special event. Numerous t-shirt designs were submitted, with the vast majority coming from Bentonville Schools students. A selection committee composed of community members will select a winning shirt.
The event is generously supported by Runway Group and Visit Bentonville.
